** Each musical number is a fun little parody/{{Expy}} and they have a number of GeniusBonus shout-outs. ''Augustus Gloop'' nods to the song style of the 1971 film; ''Violet Beauregard'' is a little nod to techno/funk; ''Veruca Salt'' is a gentle ballad with a Beatles vibe; and ''Mike Teavee'' has punk anger and a spray of pop-culture references (along with another nod to the Beatles in its bridge).

''Augustus Gloop'' nods to Bollywood musical numbers (at the song style suggestion of the 1971 film; Creator/DeepRoy), ''Violet Beauregard'' Beauregarde'' is a little nod to techno/funk; ''Veruca Salt'' is a gentle ballad with a Beatles vibe; and ''Mike Teavee'' has punk anger and a spray of pop-culture references (along with another nod to the Beatles in its bridge).

* A small one: the owner of the sweet shop where Charlie finds his ticket telling the adults who are trying to force the poor kid into selling it to them to back off. This is faithfully incorporated into the 2005 film.

''Awesome moments specific to the 1971 film adaptation go [[Awesome/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory here]].''

!!1971 Film * Violet Beauregard decides she's had enough of Veruca's crap and snaps at her. This is the only time anyone tells Veruca off to her face and what's more, it leaves her ''in stunned silence!''. * Charlie trying to save Augustus from drowning. * Grandpa Joe angrily calling out Wonka [[spoiler: for not giving Charlie his lifetime supply over stealing the Fizzy Lifting drinks]].

* "It Must Be Believed to Be Seen", the Act One finale and Willy Wonka's introductory song, is [[AwesomeMusic/{{Theatre}} a terrific song]] in and of itself. The staging makes it even more spectacular -- the ObfuscatingDisability trick that sets up an InstantCostumeChange...the entire assembled crowd of Golden Ticket finders and press becoming a troupe of backup dancers seemingly out of sheer reverence...the gloomy factory's windows first being lit up with a deft wave of his cane and then changing colors until the whole place looks like the mothership from ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind''...the delightfully ominous DoorClosesEnding. If the right kind of LargeHam is playing Wonka (and Douglas Hodge, the role originator, was indeed that), the cumulative effect of all this is a sense of sheer ''power'' rolling over the audience.
